Description

Jessica wore her hair in this classic style for the 2007 NCLR ALMA Awards and looked amazing! Her hair length fell just below her shoulders and layers were cut throughout the ends of her hair to add texture to her various sized curls. This is a great hairstyle for diamond face shapes because of the weight that has been added through the mid-lengths.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Part to the Left

Placeholder articles

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. Use a Paddle Brush

Placeholder articles

A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.

4. Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush

Placeholder articles

Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.

5. Use Large Hot Rollers

Placeholder articles

A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.

6. Apply Hot Rollers Close to Part

Placeholder articles

Take a section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft towards the roots and secure it with a pin or clip. Continue applying the rollers through your front section down to your ears. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

7. Apply Hot Rollers Through the Back

Placeholder articles

Take the entire back section of your hair, and then starting from the crown, take a smaller section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Repeat this step until you have reached the nape of your neck and the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

8. Piece the Ends Using Gel-wax

Placeholder articles

Apply a small amount of gel-wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.
